Re: larger fuel tank?

Hi guys, I'm pretty new to the forum and have never posted before. I felt like I should pipe in here though because I just purchased an Aero tank a couple of months ago. I have an '05 Quigley with the 6.0. I ordered a 45 gallon replacement tank from Aero and had it installed here at my local diesel shop. The fit was perfect, but I'm having trouble getting the sending unit to work properly. They are aware of the problem and seem willing to work it out with me but as of yet I haven't had the time to dedicate to getting it done. So, long story short, they seem to be nice people at Aero and the tank fits great. I do have an issue with the sending unit though...

Well it is, just not directly from TF. QuadVan and SMB pool together to have TF make large runs of the tanks. TF doesn't sell enough to stock them. They posted on another forum a while back to gauge interest in doing a limited-time direct sale, but they needed 20 order which they did not get (I think they got about 5 people who were interested).
That's interesting, I didn't know QV/SMB did that. TF said they weren't making them anymore. Absolutely top quality manufacturing, if you can get a TF tank I suggest you do so.

Curious as to what tank you got from them. I have looked on the website but they don't list a van tank that I can see.

Thanks

Re: larger fuel tank?

If you scroll to the bottom of their home page you can see where they offer tanks for 4x4 Ford vans. The tank actually bolts right up to the frame which is pretty nice. I called and they asked me what capacity I wanted. They make them to order.

Re: larger fuel tank?

WhitH,

I looked it up, actually found it after a bit of faffing around and then called. It seems they make a couple of solutions. One is a 45 gallon tank that replaces the short tank on Quigleys, leaving the passenger side rail and the spare tyre area for other things. Or you can get up to a 60 gallon tank that will fit in the spare tyre area. Apparently they are all just bolt-up. Waiting on a price....but thanks for the lead.

Re: larger fuel tank?

Yep, I got a replacement tank that goes in the spot where my tiny 23 gallon tank used to sit. There are flanges off of the tank that bolt directly to the frame. Mine was delivered to Oregon for $1100, that includes some optional extra plating on the bottom of the tank for protection. Keep in mind I'm having some sending unit issues if you do decide to order from them. Again, I feel like I'm going to get it worked out with them, but haven't as of yet.

Re: larger fuel tank?

I've looked at the different options. I think when I'm ready to do this I'll get the parts from an 07 e series with the aft axle fuel tank and add it to my van in addition to the current 31 gallons.

I located the 07 model year with the 37 gallon aft axle setup, determined the vin online and what vehicles came with the 37g in 07.



When I'm ready I'll find one in a junk yard. All the mounting hardware, filler hose assembly, etc.

Re: larger fuel tank?

Is Aero Tanks offering the E-series in tanks in gas now? I checked a while back and they could only sell them for diesel because gas has to meet some extra standards.

Re: larger fuel tank?

Carringb, since mine's a diesel I didn't ask, but you're right most things on their site seem to imply that they still only do diesel tanks.

Re: larger fuel tank?

I'd be a little leary of a 60 gallon rear tank - that is >350 lbs behind the axle. Could do funny things when you make a quick lane change.
